One of the great narrative poems in English, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is admired for its fluid meter and masterly structure, accurate observation of sensuous detail and mystic power. Coleridge asserted that his aim in writing the poem was to make the supernatural seem real. Now readers can enjoy this landmark of English literature and over twenty other poems by Coleridge in this inexpensive, authoritative edition. Included are two other famous narrative poems, "Kubla Khan" and "Christabel," along with a selection of sonnets, lyrics, and odes. Among these are the moving "Sonnet: To a Friend who asked how I felt when the Nurse first presented my Infant to me," "Frost at Midnight," "The Nightingale," "The Pains of Sleep," "To William Wordsworth," and "Youth and Age." All are reprinted from an authoritative edition.
Dover (1992) republication of selections from "The Poems of Samuel Taylor Coleridge" published by Humphrey Milford/Oxford University Press, London, 1917.

Most of Coleridge's poems in this (very cheap) collection do little to me. Christabel and Kubla Khan in particular are florid but insipid. The narrative in the Rime of the Ancient Mariner (which is its call to fame) is somewhat engaging, but falls flat as many times as it rises. レビュー全文を読む

著者について (1992)

Born in Ottery St. Mary, England, in 1772, Samuel Taylor Coleridge studied revolutionary ideas at Cambridge before leaving to enlist in the Dragoons. After his plans to start a communist society in the United States with his friend Robert Southey, later named poet laureate of England, were botched, Coleridge instead turned his attention to teaching and journalism in Bristol. Coleridge married Southey's sister-in-law Sara Fricker, and they moved to Nether Stowey, where they became close friends with William and Dorothy Wordsworth. From this friendship a new poetry emerged, one that focused on Neoclassic artificiality. In later years, their relationship became strained, partly due to Coleridge's moral collapse brought on by opium use, but more importantly because of his rejection of Wordworth's animistic views of nature. In 1809, Coleridge began a weekly paper, The Friend, and settled in London, writing and lecturing. In 1816, he published Kubla Kahn. Coleridge reported that he composed this brief fragment, considered by many to be one of the best poems ever written lyrically and metrically, while under the influence of opium, and that he mentally lost the remainder of the poem when he roused himself to answer an ill-timed knock at his door. Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Christabel, and his sonnet Ozymandias are all respected as inventive and widely influential Romantic pieces. Coleridge's prose works, especially Biographia Literaria, were also broadly read in his day. Coleridge died in 1834.
